Rear Brakes

Hi everyone,

I've got a small technical question for you. Can anyone tell me how much cable movement at the caliper is required to engage the rear brakes when parking? I've emailed a number of companies but as of yet I have not been able to get any answers. Any help would be appreciated as it would aid in developing my university project.

Cheers

I don't think I've ever seen a figure quoted & I've never measured it, but I'd think around 5mm for a properly-adjusted system.

assuming you are talking about disc calipers with built in handbrake,although i've worked on countless 1000's i've never taken much notice as to just how far they moved but id say it is more like 10mm

Depends on the cam to piston ratio.

I bet no two are the same.
